Mushrooms are used in our BEO facial oils as potent antioxidants and moisturizers which can assist in brightening the skin, lightening age spots and evening out overall skin tone.
Topical application of mushrooms make a powerful addition to our products because they can offer a slightly different effect over many of your typical anti-oxidant ingredients such as vitamin C, vitamin E , ALA, DMAE and all of the other usual suspects.
Several types of mushrooms contain antioxidants as well as compounds which have anti-inflammatory properties. This is important for all skin types as many common skin problems are caused by too much inflammation and excessive free radical damage.
Many skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea, hyperpigmemtation and acne can be caused by too much inflammation. These conditions can be greatly helped by the topical use of organic compounds that promote healing and fight inflammation. Cheers!
